As chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sen. John Cornyn (R.-Tx.) has taken charge of fundraising for GOP Senate candidates. However, his performance has proven to be an 'epic fail,' as Democrat Party Senate candidates are way ahead in campaign contributions.
According to the Washington Times, "Democratic senators facing tough re-election campaigns this year have a significant cash advantage over their potential challengers, according to the latest finance reports — though in some of those races, the candidates are at least making up ground."
Nevertheless, campaign contribution figures have also shown that Sen. Cornyn is raking in big bucks in his re-election campaign, which is raising concerns that he is more interested in bringing in big time cash for himself and not his fellow Republican Senate candidates.
As reported by the Washington Times, "Every Democratic incumbent running for re-election in a tight race had more cash on hand at the end of 2013 than their opponents. In New Hampshire, North Carolina, Minnesota and Colorado the advantage was overwhelming, while Republican challengers were somewhat closer in Arkansas, Alaska and Louisiana."
Recent polls have shown that Sen. Cornyn is losing his favorability ratings amongst Texas voters, just ahead of his Republican primary on March 5.
